We did not stay due to our problems with travelling plans.


I had the patience to count 130 steps to reach the apartment, located on the sixth floor of a building, in the midst of a construction. The apartment was clean, with the exception of bedding which was impossible to be used. The bathroom was also clean and beautiful, but unless you have less than 1.50m tall is IMPOSSIBLE to take a bath in this apartment. Definitely would not recommend staying in this apartment. Do not make the same mistake I did.


I counted-- 143 stairs to actually get to the apartment. They don't mention that in the listing, that's it's on the 5th floor with no elevator. You can see from the photos that the bath is under a curved roof, which was uncomfortable. Additionally the owner messed up my booking by first confirming an 8 am arrival time, then acting as if he didn't know when we showed up, I was unhappy about that. But after all of that was straightened out, the place was decent. Comfortable enough for 2 people.


- Make sure you know at least some French before arriving. - You'll hear walls crying for repainting at night. - You will be climbing all the way to the 6th floor and down at least once a day. - The bath (140cm) is positioned in the corner where the roof is diagonal, making it a challenge to take a shower without crouching or sitting. - After all you will think that for the price you've paid, it's a very well located and bearable place. You came to see Paris, not to stay in apartment, right?

Great location near arch of Triumph and 5min from metro. Place is very small, not very clean. Room is small and not renovated, bathroom looks much better although has inconvenient shower solution. Narrow staircase with 116 steps, hard to climb up after sightseeing. There is renovation on the building exactly at 6th floor where the apartment is. Builders come at 8am and start making noise. Great place and price if you don't have high expectations and prefer very simple accommodation.
